TRY It...You'll LIKE It For every woman out there who has had to sit idly, feigning interest as your husband, date or significant other does a bourbon tasting, this blog is dedicated to you. Does this sound familiar? "Try this one--you'll like it." Or: "This one is different than anything you've tried before, I swear!" It's all lies, right? Mouthwash on ice tastes better than this swill! So ladies, if you are anything like me, you'll be skeptical, but I'm telling you straight--this might be the one. Finally, there's a drink that means we can show our support in the bourbon frenzy. When I first heard of banana-infused bourbon, I shuddered. This was another bad experiment gone awry. Again, someone said this was different from any bourbon I'd ever tried. And guess what? This time they were finally right! So all the things I'm not too crazy about mixing together in a glass have become my new favorite, and my husband Bill is thrilled that I now will finally drink bourbon with him.
